Transcript by: only-time (Enya Fan Studio)
Aired: ABC (USA) (January 26, 2006)




[ "Dancing With the Stars", John O'Hurley, is guest co-host on the show ]

[ Clips from the "Only Time" (Remix) music video plays: "And you can say why your heart cries.... as your love flies.  Only time.... ]

John

Makes you just want to sway. Doesn't it?

Kelly

It does! She's one of the most accomplished recording artists, of course Enya [1]. She's sold more than 70 million albums worldwide. I think all of them are on my iPod. Her new CD  is just out. It's already topping the charts. Here's Enya with a rare performance of her new hit, Amarantine.


[ Audience applauds as Enya begins to sing, "Amarantine". She sings about 3/4 of the song, leaving the last verse out and ending with, "Oooooooh." ]

Kelly

That is so gorgeous.

Enya

Thank you.

Kelly

Gorgeous. Gorgeous.

John

What a joy!

Kelly

I have chills. My chills have chills. And of course, "Amarantine" means everlasting, which I didn't know until they held up that card. Um....It's really a gorgeous song. Do you write all your own music?

Enya

Yes I do. I write all the melodies.

John

Did you feel the mood in the studio....just like this.. [ Enya laughs ] You have such a singular ability to just change the mood. You have such sensual style in your music. Absolutely.....

Enya

Thank you.

Kelly

Easy, John! [ Enya laughs ] You're a married man!

John

I know. I'm just...It's a good thing your standing between us, right?

Kelly

Do you know that Enya lives in a castle?

John

An Irish castle.

Kelly

[ To Enya ] Do you clean your own castle?

Enya

Uhhmm.... [ A brief pause  ]. No.

Kelly

You have people? A staff?

Enya

I have to say there are a lot of castles in Ireland....and my castle is a small, homely castle.

Kelly

Oh. A small, homely castle.

Enya

It's 19th century.

Kelly

Is that when you took the real estate tour and did they say, "Here's a small homely castle?"

Enya

[ laughs ] Well, some of them are very, very old....but it's British. Victorian. It's 1840s. So, in Ireland, that is not very old.

Kelly

Yeah. That's like new construction. [Enya laughs]

John

Now back to the album. You have a couple of songs on the album that are actually....you've created your own language

Enya

This Loxian language. I worked, uh, with Peter Jackson of Lord of the Rings.

Kelly

Oh, sure. Right.

Enya

....And the lyricist who works with me....we've decided it would be nice to sing in Elvish. So when it came to the new album, we thought, "Why not create a fictional language for the album?" So, Loxian....

Kelly

That's gorgeous. Oh, that's a lot of fun.

John

Enya's new CD is in stores right now.

Kelly

Oh, it's wonderful. Go get it now. [ To Enya ] Thank you so much for being here.

Enya

Thank you. Thank you so much.

Enya turns to the audience, waves, and gives a big smile.
